About this book


The present book discusses topics related to research and development of materials and devices at nanoscale size and their respective application in medicine and biomedicine.

The individual chapters give a detailed state of the art overview to the distinct topic. Apparently disconnected fields - life sciences, biomedicine, chemistry, physics, medicine and engineering - are bridged with a highly interdisciplinary view onto each subject.
